student testimonial

I am so grateful to the teachers and administrators of Bellus Academy. As a person changing careers in mid-life, I appreciated the fact that it was an environment that demanded professionalism and the best from its students. In return, we received a top-notch education and legitimate career opportunities that other schools just can't provide. We worked in a luxurious spa atmosphere, and offered terrific service to real salon patrons, which boosted our confidence and honed our skills.
 
And it wasn't always easy. It wasn't always "five stars" in my brain. I didn't pick up some things as fast as some of the other students. There were times when I cried and , literally, felt like I  wanted to throw a mannequin head across the parking lot, by her ponytail - and just  give up. But, I had  awesome instructors like Matt Hom, Bryden Muggleston, Eric Thrane and Carerra Bailey, who told me, "Hang in there. We know it's tough, but we believe in you." And when it came time for State Board, as with most Bellus grads, not only did I pass the State Board the first try, but I passed it with flying colors. (I believe the school has something like a 90+  pass  percentage rate with its grads.)
 
There is a reason Bellus graduates get some of the best entry level salon and spa jobs, after earning their license. They go beyond the usual fair of "get them their hours and get them their license." They more than prepare us for State Board. They help us SHINE. They offer externships to top students, and when I found the job market to be rather hostile to a person of my age, I was able to meet with counselors, and re-assess my next steps. After a few tweaks of the resume and a few job leads, I was hired as an assistant at an incredible salon. I couldn't ASK for a better fit for me,  or more awesome co-workers and bosses. Had I needed further education? I could have attended courses they offer to professional alumni, as well. They really went out of their way to help me succeed. That is what I am most thankful for. They CARE about our success. Let it be known, that I highly recommend Bellus Academy to anyone pursuing a career in the beauty industry.  I am proud not not only be a beauty school graduate...but a BELLUS ACADEMY Graduate.
